    OK, coming from a state with a joke of a movie actor as Governor, this makes a whole lot of sense. The newly elected Governor of New Jersey, Senator Jon Corzine, gets to name his replacement in the US Senate. As a result every hack in Democratic politics is lining up to get his nod, but what is needed is someone from the outside. Am I crazy for thinking the politically savvy blogger, Attytood is on to something - SENATOR SPRINGSTEEN?

    With elections getting so expensive, it does seem like Congress and the Governorships will only be a place for very wealthy individuals with some name recognition. That pretty much begs celebrities.

    Nah, I don't think Bruce should be appointed. He was born to run.

    Well neither can Bruce, either -- and I've never held it against him!

    whoa, wait a minute ... The Boss can't sing? Next you'll be telling me Dylan couldn't either! Or Tom Waits? How can you not appreciate the Boss' dulcet tones? He gave hope to every 70's and 80's shower-singing Dylan wannabe in the nation. Pardon me while I yell out "BORN IN THE USA" at the top of my lungs. Can't sing indeed!!!:mad: ;)

    Not to worry, I'm a huge Bruce fan -- but vocally, he's got a range of about half an octave. Now it might be a great half octave...

    If we're awarding political office on the basis of vocal range, then it's got to be Beefheart for President. Unfortunately, I think it's a bit late in the day for him.
    :(

    Am reading Twain's A Connecticut Yankee right now and can only think of "Sir Boss."

    He'd clean up the senate ...

    Cultural references that go back beyond the 1960s? Hey, dude, this maybe too much a shock for our systems. I have to spell out every CCR reference for the younger crowd and now you're bringing in Twain?
    :p

    Great reference, btw.:D

    PS - is the screen name a tribute to "The Big Lebowski" or are you just a socal boy at heart? ;)

    Like Beavis and Butthead, The Big Lebowski had far too formative an effect on my life. :cool:

    Don't know, I think Arnie might have ruined it for the rest of them. Not that he could do any worse than the current senators. That would be pretty much impossible at this point.

    And now that I've said that, I'm sure they'll do something new that's horrible to prove me wrong.
